what you can do is, ask for help with the issue from knowledgeable 
people, and if you have indeed found a bug or missing feature, file a 
report [http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/] It will be addressed, believe it 
or not, and probably in much shorter time, and for less cost, than you 
will find with certain monopolistic entities you seem to be more 
comfortable with.

I know that thousands of people can use Mozilla with i18n and bi-di 
charsets, myself included. http://mozilla.org.il/, looks ok to me. But 
sadly I only understand the latin fragments (and sometimes not even 
that) - but ask around, it does work...

Or, you could just sit on your hands until events like the recent CERT 
advisory and MS's lack of attention to browser development take their 
toll on your precious 90% number. You will eventually get enough 
annoyed emails from FF/Moz/Saf/Op users that you will decide to upgrade 
your _site_ - but how many customers (permanently) lost in the 
meantime...? you weigh the cost - but don't say there is nothing you 
can do about it.
